Current Projects

In the field of energy production, REENAG is currently working on wind energy and small scale hydropower projects.

In the field of energy efficiency current projects are done in the sectors of industry, transportation and buildings.

  • wind energy
  • hydro energy
  • energy efficiency


REENAG has participated in the development and financing of now operational wind parks in Austria and Romania with a total installed capacity of around 90 MW.

We are currently working on wind parks in Austria and Sweden with a total installed capacity of 250 MW.


Small hydropower plant Kanata - Bolivia

REENAG holds a share in the hydropower plant KANATA in Cochabamba, Bolivia. This power plant, with an installed capacity of 7.6 MW, has been operational since 1999 and feeds the generated electricity into the Bolivian grid.

Small scale hydro power plant Canteras - Peru

The small hydropower plant CANTERAS, with an installed capacity of 0.5 MW, is harvesting energy from water flow over a downhill gradient step (made up of a ramp structure) from the feed-in canal of an irrigation system.

Further projects in hydro power plants - Peru

Additional hydropower projects, with a total installed capacity of 10 MW and located within the same irrigation system as the one at Canteras, are in the final phases of project development.

In addition, REENAG is currently developing three larger run-of-river hydropower stations (diversion plants), with a total installed capacity of 12 MW.

All of these projects are being developed via a Peru-based project development company.


In the field of energy efficiency, REENAG focuses on integrative concepts combining renewable energy sources and applicable measures in energy efficiency to develop environmentally sustainable and economically viable solutions.


Development of a strategy for energy efficiency and for the use of renewable energy sources for Asfinag. This sustainability strategy will form the basis for the decision making processes for future project implementation.


As a partner of an international consortium, REENAG is currently working on a HORIZON 2020 EU project by the name of TrustEE, aiming to create a platform for the development and financing of projects in energy efficiency in industrial thermal processes applications. Projektpartners are AEE Intec (, AINIA Centro Tecnologico (, European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (eceee) (, Fraunhofer Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Angewandten Forschung E.V.( and Universidade de Évora (


The main objective of the task is to identify, verify and promote the role of SHIP systems (Solar Heat for Industrial Processes) as reliable part of the industrial energy supply system, both as single component or part of an integrated energy system. Technical and non-technical barriers will be tackled. The main contribution of the Austrian part of the project are [1] a dimensioning and integration guideline as well [2] a Guideline to Market for SHIP and integrated energy systems.
Solar process heating can technically and economically supply up to 4% of the total industrial heating demand and by this contribute significantly to the reduction of CO2 emissions in this sector. Despite many national and international initiatives in the field of solar process heat and a great deal of technological progress, growth in market volume is far below this potential.
The question is what steps are necessary to release this potential.
The main objective of the task is to identify, verify and promote the role of SHIP systems as both, a monovalent supply technology and part of an integrated energy supply system. Instead of concentrating on component development, the overall system will be considered at process temperatures from just above the ambient temperature up to approx. 400°C-500°C. The system will be designed as an integrated energy system.
Open research questions are the standardisation of integration concepts on process and supply level and the optimized combination with other efficient heat supply technologies such as CHP, heat pumps or power-to-heat. The integration of solar energy into a hybrid energy supply system must be completed by optimized energy storage management taking into account various thermal storage technologies. On this basis, solar energy can become a reliable component of the future industrial heat supply in industrial systems.
Important results from the present Task 64 will be:
preparation of a guideline for a simplified and standardized design and integration of SHIP in industrial energy supply systems
definition of design rules for sub- and overall system components for SHIP in the integrated industrial energy system
evaluation of the system concepts by means of cross-technology system KPIs
development of a guideline for the market penetration of SHIP and integrated energy systems
promotion of innovative and holistic approaches in the investment evaluation of SHIP (as LCOH) linked to tailor-made and innovative financing schemes
promotion of SHIP innovations in the international research community and tailor-made marketing packages for the various interest groups and stakeholders.
